Summary: Card has been working perfect. It is a large card so be ready to sacrifice some of your PCI slots. In a mini tower with a mini mother board I was left with only 1 PCI slot free out of 4 slots. Just enough for my ethernet card to slide in. This was the only downside for me. Awesome design, but as big as a Cadillac.
Summary: I have a Dell XPS 420 that came with an ATI Radeon HD 3870 that I needed a new video card for. A few months ago, I upgraded the RAM and installed 64-bit Windows 7. Since that upgrade, I had problems with the entire system locking up very frequently when I stopped playing an .mp4 file in full-screen. This is a full lock-up with the existing image frozen in place and the entire system stopped. Cutting power was the only thing that would get it back.
Summary: I bought this to go in a stock dell computer thats a few years old. I had to buy the Z model for it to fin im my case. It will run Warcraft max settings at 1080p with a framerate of about 55-60. it will jump down to 40fps or so when i start fighting but i think its because its not getting enough power. My PSU is only a 300watt. amd recomends 450watt or larger. The only problem is that the card when under 80% load will get really hot.
Summary: With this card my current Graphics applications like Photoshop, Flash, and other Adobe products that Tax my GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) are feeling less sluggish and rendering quicker and more reliably with this video card. Not to mention my side past time (Gaming) has gotten to the point where I can max out all my video effects for my Source Engine Games (Half Life2+) and I scream in performance with my COD MOD2 Now as far as HD, I love the fact that I can play high...
Summary: This is a great card for the price and if you are using Windows-7 and have at least one monitor with a DP port. The advertising is not clear about those requirements. Even ATI tech support had to refer me further upstream to find out if the card works with XP. It doesn't. I purchased two cards, hoping to setup two workstations with 3-monitors each, for business applications on XP machines. Nothing worked right.
Summary: +(s) 1. Plays latest games at 1920 * 1200,AA4x,highest on other settings, at decent frame rate, an occasional glitch now and again( not certain if it was the card tho) 2. Love the size.Its shorter than the 48XXs and forget about the nVidias (just a tad smaller in length than a matx motherboard). 3. No problems with installation .oooo... dont use the cd , download and install latest drivers. 4. Runs surprisingly cool (comparing it to the 4XXX series). 5.
Summary: GPU temperature is tend to be higher than the second edition 5770 design. PCB is simpler than the original design and has less components. so the oc capability could be compromised. But XFX offer a lifetime warranty, can't beat it.
Summary: Upgraded from a nvidia 9800 card due to some heat issues it was having. Been running rock solid for a few weeks now. Great frame rate, overall zippy card. Only really used for WoW and haven't had any noticeable drops in frame rates.
